Monét X Change and Trinity The Tuck share the crown on All Stars
In an unexpected twist, RuPaul crowned two winners in the finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars. It was the first-ever winning tie. After a season of fierce runway battles and lip-syncs, Monét X Change and Trinity The Tuck earned the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar,” $100,000 cash each and coveted spots in the Drag Race Hall of Fame.
“When faced with the difficult decision of which queen deserved to win, the words of the great philosopher, Michelle Visage, popped into my head: It takes two to make a thing go right. It takes two to make it out of sight,” said executive producer and three-time Emmy® Award-winning host RuPaul. “Not only are Monét X Change and Trinity The Tuck the best of the best, together they can spread their charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent wider, faster and further than ever before. Long Live Drag Race!”
“Ah! The first chocolate ALL STAR,” said Monét X Change. “Soak this up, America!”
“Wow! I am so excited and very grateful,” said Trinity The Tuck. “This cast was amazing, so I’m very happy that I got to experience this with them! I am so very thankful to RuPaul and the judges for pushing me to be better and seeing an All Star in me! I’m so thankful to World of Wonder and VH1 for giving me this platform and I’m so proud to have this honor! I couldn’t have done this without the support of my partner, Leo, my friends, family and fans! Thank you!”
Later this month, Miley Cyrus joins RuPaul and judges Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews to kick off season 11 of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
